"Go up hill!" Ancient Thira Tip by tere1
Ancient Thira, Santorini Island: 9 reviews and 36 photos
Ancient Thira is situated on a switchback up mountain right before Kamari, 2,110 ft high. After driving up the mountain you will have to leave your car or your means of transportation ( I saw many people climbing up the mountain...oops!) and go even more up.
I have to say that I gave up climbing when I reached the remains of an ancient church! Up there , there are relics of a Dorian city, with 9th-century BC tombs, an engraved phallus, Hellenistic houses, and traces of Byzantine fortifications and churches.
You will have amazing views from up there.
Directions: On a switchback up mountain right before Kamari, 2,110 ft high.
